Among the myriad of stock recommendations from the renowned Jim Cramer on CNBC’s β€œMad Money Lightning Round,” he hailed Vertiv Holdings Co VRT as β€œone of the great performers of our time.”

Vertiv is poised to unveil its much-anticipated fourth-quarter results before the market opens on Feb. 21, 2024. Analysts are anticipating a quarterly earnings surge to 53 cents per share, compared to 28 cents per share in the corresponding period last year. Furthermore, the company is projected to report revenue of $1.88 billion, signifying a substantial increase from $1.65 billion in the year-earlier quarter.

Cramer also advocated sticking with General Dynamics Corporation GD while commending its CEO. General Dynamics recently surpassed expectations with fourth-quarter sales results, posting a remarkable 7.5% year-over-year revenue growth to $11.67 billion, outperforming the consensus of $11.37 billion.

However, when asked about C3.ai, Inc. AI, Cramer expressed skepticism due to the absence of earnings. β€œThat’s Tom Siebel [CEO of C3.ai], I happen to like Tom. I don’t see any earnings there,” Cramer noted. β€œI can’t recommend a stock that has no earnings.”

In contrast, C3.ai announced its upcoming annual AI conference, C3 Transform 2024, scheduled from March 5 to March 7, which is expected to spotlight the prodigious impact of generative AI in delivering productivity and efficiency benefits across various industries.

Altimmune, Inc. ALT, according to Cramer, is a β€œgood spec, but that’s what it is, it’s spec.”

Goldman Sachs analyst Corinne Jenkins recently reinstated coverage on Altimmune with a Neutral rating and announced a $13 price target.

On a different note, Cramer recommended investing in Affirm Holdings, Inc. AFRM, deeming it β€œa winner.” Affirm reported a 48% year-over-year surge in fiscal second-quarter revenue to $591.1 million, surpassing the consensus estimate of $520.62 million. Additionally, the company reported a loss of 54 cents per share, outperforming analyst estimates for a loss of 72 cents per share.

Darling Ingredients Inc. DAR captivated Cramer’s interest, although he accentuated the persistent decline in its stock price. β€œIt’s too inexpensive to go, I’m going to leave it like that,” he added.

Citigroup analyst Thomas Palmer recently initiated coverage on Darling Ingredients with a Neutral rating and announced a price target of $49.
